Description Michael Palimaka (kensington) gentoo-dev 2017-06-04 07:20:22 UTC
net-misc/clipgrab depends on dev-qt/qtwebkit:4 which is ancient and will never see any security updates.

Since this appears to be a binary-only package, I'm not sure if there's much we can do to save it long-term especially considering Qt 4 itself is also dead.

i just bumped it to 3.6.5, but it still depends on qt:4.

time to treeclean.
